I agree too , I started with a 50hp 15' just 4 years ago
had it 3 months its was my "do I want to be a boater boat"
then on to a 165hp 20' er that took me to last spring
when I sprung for a 25' 300hp, AND IM STILL NOT READY
for a 37 AT, I took the boating course too and I was amazed at what I learned .
